Vinyl composition tiles (VCT): vinyl composition tiles are different from regular vinyl tiles because they are made from a no-flex mixture of vinyl and ground limestone.
These 12-by-12 inches tiles are extremely tough and are commonly used in schools and similar institutions. The installation for VCT is unforgiving and requires the work of professionals. Each VCT must be glued down and flushed with its neighbours without the use of grout for the best results.
Woven vinyl: this type of vinyl flooring is made by weaving strands of fiberglass encapsulated in vinyl into soft, textured sheets. It is naturally springy, stain-resistant and very easy to clean and maintain. Another perk to choosing woven vinyl is that it does not deteriorate if left outdoors. During installation, these woven vinyl sheets can either be laid down or glued down to the subfloor.
SPC flooring: this is actually an upgrade of luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) that is environmentally-friendly, simple to install, waterproof with strong stability and comes in a variety of designs. SPC flooring is specially designed with Unilin, which is a click-locking system for its installation. With this technology, the installation process with SPC flooring is easy and compatible with many different types of floor bases such as concrete, ceramic or even existing flooring.
